Patricia Maginnis, who was 93 when she died on August 30, may have been the first person to publicly call for abortion to be completely decriminalized in America. Despite her insistence on direct action on abortion-rights at a time when many were uncomfortable even saying the word "abortion," Maginnis is not a bold letter name of the movement. That may be because she didn't seek the limelight and she cared more for action then self-presentation.Guests include Lili Loofborow, who profiled Maginnis for Slate; Professor Leslie J. Regan, who wrote the book When Abortion Was a Crime; and the artist Andrea Bowers whose video piece, Letters to An Army of Three recreated the messages people would send Maginnis when they were desperate to access abortion services. Special thanks to the Schlesinger Library, where the 1975 oral history of Pat Maginnis is housed.

The Department of Justice asked a federal appeals court on Monday to halt Texas's abortion law banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. This comes after a federal appeals court on Friday temporarily reinstated Texas's law, following a brief block by a lower court. Amid the legal uncertainty, local news organizations are reporting a near-total shutdown of abortions in Texas, and the ripple effects have already been seen in California, where clinics are scheduling appointments for women planning to travel from Texas. In the meantime, on Dec. 1 the Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in the closely-watched Mississippi abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which could overturn Roe v. Wade. We'll discuss the latest news regarding abortion law and the current stakes in Texas, Mississippi and beyond.

Advocates on both sides of the abortion debate have Dec. 1 circled on their calendars. That's the day the U.S. Supreme Court will take up Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Clinic, a Mississippi case that has the potential to severely restrict abortion rights and undermine the court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. Other cases out of Texas and Kentucky threaten to do the same. Ahead of oral arguments, 154 researchers and economists submitted an amicus brief to the court, explaining how reduced access to abortion affects women's income, educational opportunities, professional success and more. One of the signatories, University of Denver economist Paula Cole, joins RadioEd to explore the "downstream impacts" for women and economies across the country.

On today's show I share my conversation with Therese Shechter, award-winning filmmaker and writer, and the founder of the feminist production company Trixie Films.  Her work fuses humor, activism, and personal storytelling to disrupt what's considered most sacred about womanhood. She is a Canada Council for the Arts grantee for her documentary My So-Called Selfish Life which is having its World Premier this week at the Woodstock Film Festival. The film examines what it means to say no to motherhood in a society that assumes all women want children, and exposes what's at stake when women are denied the right to control their own reproductive lives. It is the third part of a trilogy which includes her films “How To Lose Your Virginity” (2013) and “I Was A Teenage Feminist” (2005). These documentaries have screened from Rio de Janeiro to Istanbul to Seoul, and her work is in the collections of over 300 universities, non-profits, and libraries. I had the opportunity of a sneak peak at her film and it's fascinating, thought provoking, informative and entertaining… and this is coming from someone who has struggled to have children yet is STILL trying!Woodstock Film Festival Showtimes and Locations:World Premiere: Thursday, September 30 4:45 PM at Bearsville Theater, Woodstock, NYEncore Screening: Friday, October 1 11:00 AM at Orpheum Theatre, Saugerties NYVirtual Screenings: September 29-Oct 10 streaming onlineTickets: https://bit.ly/SelfishLifeWoodstockTrailer: https://myselfishlife.com/I played songs by Miss Eaves, and Fanny, but I don't have the rights to them so you only get a sample here.

Should feminists be pro-life? Should conservatives support more welfare for families? Who is Mary Wollstonecraft? What did RBG get right and wrong? I dug into these questions with my guest today, the legal scholar Erika Bachiochi. Our discussion centers on Erika's new book, The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision, which argues for a form of feminism that takes into account natural differences between men and women, especially in what she calls “reproductive asymmetry” i.e. that having sex and having children carry different implications for men and women. We talk about her journey from a Bernie Sanders supporting kind of feminist to a Roman Catholic kind of feminist, including a strong pro-life moral basis. Her intellectual heroine is the 18th century thinker Mary Wollstonecraft, who had a feminist vision that was about the equal pursuit of the good, which Erika John Stuart Mill's feminism based on a perfect equality.  We talk about what Ruth Bader Ginsburg got right and wrong, whether conservatives should be supporting President Biden's big pro-family welfare expansions, the Texas abortion law, family-friendly policy, and much more.  I should say that at the very beginning Erika candidly describes her troubled childhood and early adulthood, which in her darkest hours ever led her to thoughts of suicide. Erika Bachiochi  Erika Bachiochi is a legal scholar specializing in Equal Protection jurisprudence, feminist legal theory, Catholic social teaching, and sexual ethics. She studied at Middlebury College and got her law degree from Boston University. Erika is now a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and a Senior Fellow at the Abigail Adams Institute, where she directs the Wollstonecraft Project. She lives in Boston with her husband and seven children.  More Bachiochi  Bachiochi's new book, The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision, is a thoughtful and provocative read.  Her previous article in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy, titled Embodied Equality: Debunking Equal Protection Arguments for Abortion Rights, served as a basis for her book.  Bachiochi has also written a few op-eds for Newsweek Follow her work on twitter: @erikabachiochi Also mentioned  Bachiochi quited Mill in On Liberty: “misplaced notions of liberty prevent moral obligations on the part of parents from being recognized, and legal obligations from being imposed” She also quoted Wollstonecraft in A Vindication of the Rights of Woman: “A truly benevolent legislator always endeavours to make it the interest of each individual to be virtuous; and thus private virtue becoming the cement of public happiness, an orderly whole is consolidated by the tendency of all the parts towards a common center”  We referenced my work on the economic and social status of American women.  We discussed the work of my colleague, Isabel Sawhill, and her book Generation Unbound  I referenced Scott Winship's work on the dynamics of marriage and childrearing  Bachiochi spoke about Mary Ann Glendon, a leading thinker in this space and a professor at Harvard Law.  She also referenced Joan Williams' op-ed in the New York Times, titled The Case for Accepting Defeat on Roe.  I quoted Margaret Mead who wrote, “We won't get equality between groups by ignoring the differences between them.”  Earlier this summer, Josh Hawley tweeted that he was against including women in the draft because he didn't want to “force [service] upon our daughters, sisters, and wives.” We mentioned Heather Boushey who currently serves on the White House Council of Economic Advisors, and her work on family policy, for example in her Finding Time: The Economics of Work-Life Conflict (2016). The Mary Wollstonecraft twitter account I referred to seems to have gone quiet lately. As an alternative.

"Because of my access to birth control and abortion, I was able to have my first child last year when my husband and I were financially stable enough, emotionally ready and could be the best parents we could be for him. Family planning is a human right for all birthing bodies and after experiencing childbirth I am an even stronger advocate for everyone's right to an abortion, on demand for any reason they decide to," writes tonight's host Desiree Joy Frias. For too long, anti-abortion forces have claimed the label of “pro-life” while passing laws and encouraging actions that cause direct harm to people's lives and bodies. As the right-wing assault on abortion access in the United States continues to escalate, organizers in New York City are fighting back and standing up for politics that center bodily autonomy, human rights, and reproductive freedom. Hear from New York City for Abortion Rights on the local struggle to protect abortion clinics and ensure access to abortion by any means necessary. Plus, we visit the New York Taxi Workers Alliance sit-in at City Hall to discuss another life-or-death issue: medallion debt forgiveness.

A new Texas law banning abortions after six weeks has many advocates worried about the future of abortion access, even in states like Illinois where women from surrounding states often travel to get an abortion. Despite the access in the state, Illinois has only in the last five years enacted laws eliminating certain barriers. Brigid Leahy with Planned Parenthood Illinois tells City Cast's Carrie Shepherd how the 2016 election spurred action to repeal the state's “trigger law” and pass the Reproductive Health Act, guarding against changes to Roe v. Wade. Leahy also outlines how the new Texas law could affect the fight for reproductive rights throughout the country.

Today's guest hosts are Brent J. Cohen and Charlotte Hancock, Executive Director and Communications Director for Generation Progress. They discuss how, last week, the Supreme Court allowed a Texas law to take effect that bans abortion after around the sixth week of pregnancy, at which point many people do not even know they are pregnant. This law is devastating for many Texans, particularly for those who cannot afford to travel out of state to access abortion care. It also goes against the established precedent set by Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, leading many to be concerned about the implications of this law for other states across the country. To talk with Brent and Charlotte about this law, and what can be done to protect abortion rights in Texas and beyond, they're joined by two expert guests. They are Jackie Blank, a federal legislative strategist and the Act for Women campaign manager at the Center for Reproductive Rights, and Nancy Cárdenas Peña, the Texas state director for policy and advocacy at the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice.
